Wirral Northern Lights

The opportunity arose the other night on 7th Oct 2015 at very short notice that the Northern Lights may be visible as far south as Dorset. So I quickly gathered my equipment and dashed off to Hoylake more in hope than expectation. As soon as I arrived and when my eyes adjusted to the low light I could immediately see the distant glow on the horizon which could only be the elusive Aurora. Then as I was setting up my camera it started to form in front of me so I quickly adjusted my angle, took the shot and kept my fingers crossed. It was only there for about 30 seconds but Bingo I captured the moment. I stayed for another couple of hours getting many different perspectives. 

Once home again I was too excited to sleep so as I had not noticed any other photographers I thought I could have som...

Busy Time For Events And Promotional Items

It has been a busy time since my last update. I have been supporting my employer at the College by offering photos of the performers at the end of year Dance Show for the first time gaining lots of interest. This show was the first time students planned and delivered a Dance Show and I was flattered and delighted by their encouragement for me to offer pictures for sale as part of this show. The program featured my pictures throughout and I now have a ready made system for purchases which I designed for this event which I can tailor for future use. 

I plan to also support the end of year Drama performance in a similar manner. 

Also in work my pictures have been chosen to feature on leaflets promoting Performing Arts courses and also displayed on a lifesize banner promoting the area.

Stock Photography Update

Whilst its been a while since I did my last blog I have not been idle with my Photography so I thought it about time for another update. I have been mainly concentrating on adding to my portfolio of stock photos on Istock. I am keen to get a core of photos on there to see if i can start generating some funds through this stream. I am pleased to have got a fair few small commissions already and it is one thing I will be keen to expand long term. I now have over 50 pictures accepted and will add more in time. 

I have entered a few pictures in a local photography competition and am also pleased that my expanding portfolio of pictures on Flickr has now passed 400, 000 hits.

Liverpool Giantspectacular

Well it is about time for another update of what I have been up to. For those of you who noticed my website has been offline for a couple of weeks. Apologies for that but it was due to a server problem which is now resolved.

So what have I been up to? I have just come back from a relaxing holiday on the Norfolk Broards where I captured some lovely nature and evening photography which I will be uploading shortly.

I have also just completed a mammoth 4 days back & forth to Liverpool fighting through the staggeringly huge crowds to capture some of the magnificent action from the Giantspectacular. I will try to prioritise some of these and intend to upload some to my merchandise webpage for those of you who may want a memento from this unique popular event.
